3:05am
one alternative we have considered is the cover up. e-mails say to me. if anybody in the white house thought they could cover it up by referring to the mohamud video with this documentary evidence in real time, it was not just a cover up but an incredibly cover up. >> gretchen: why did mitt romney go after him in the debate. if he said it is not about the video. the president could say the uprisings were care cairo was happening before acc -- september 11th. you can't win on the debate stage. time passes here it turns out mitt romney made the smart not to talk about this? >> brian: only way you would attack this not to say it

guys? exactly. she might think he is too young. >> brian: in you go. i want to get to the bottom of that story. what is wrong with those two kids. >> gretchen: we'll be talking about that. find ourselves with empty computers. >> steve: a whole bunch of computers were humming over the state department as the attack was taking place on our consulate in benghazi. in fact now, according to internal state department e-mails obtained by fox news we can say definitively the e-mail went without two hours that proved that the attack was done by an affiliate of al-qaeda. that flies in the face of the fairytale narrative that they have been perpetuating. it was all about the video. you simply look at the proof. not true. >> fred: so it was unclassified,
4:05am
that was the headline. either is the e-mail regional security officer reports the diplomatic mission is under attack. tripoli reports 20 armed people fired shots, explosions have been heard, as well. ambassador stevens who is currently in benghazi an four personnel are in the safe compound haven. they are providing security support. this is before they knew the ambassador and three others had been killed. >> brian: they went to a safe house and then this came down. embassy claimed the group claimed responsibility and has called for an attack on embassy tripoli. they knew attacks were going to come there way. they knew they weren't be able to defend themselves. and here is vice chairman of the select intelligence committee. he has been asking these. state department has ignored the requests. he was listening to our show and heard it for the first time.
4:06am
he said this. >> we have been asking the state department for these specific e-mails for weeks now. they refused to give them to us at this point. we knew from the intelligence community that the group a claimed responsibility for the attack. now, does that mean they were responsible for it? you never know but they claim responsibility. so alshariea is an al-qaeda affiliate. so if not directly there was direction that al-qaeda was involved. what has bothered me and other members from day one we got pushed back from the white house as well as the intelligence community early on. we couldn't figure it out. it was really strange because they never do that. >> and one of these e-mails, you saw the redacted list of the recipients went to the situation room at white house. somebody probably saw two hours after the attack that was an affiliate of al-qaeda. you know what, chris stevens may
4:07am
have been alive at that time. instead five days later, rice the ambassador goes out on television and she perpetuates which essentially was a hoax and a lie. since then, there was been a cover-up. now it looks to many they are stonewalling because they don't want to truth out before the election. >> gretchen: it will be interesting to find out who was on the e-mail chain in the situation room. that will be the essence of who knew what because people or record saying they didn't know. if you look at the transcripts of the press conferences following after september 11th, he said we have no indication this is anything related to terror. i believe it was thursday of that week, he finally said it was a terror attack, but that was a complete 180 switch from the first couple of days. >> brian: we don't know if it was terror attack, we know there was terror group claiming it. we are getting conflicting

4:17am
sample -- they are sampling way more democrats than you do. what is the breakdown that you are doing? >> nationally we're showing 39% wind up being democratic, 36% republican. that is halfway between the turnout we saw in 2008 and 2004. it's important to note that there are different theories proper way to do polling. the best thing to do is looking at all the polls whether it is in ohio or nationally and try to find the common ground. what we are sees in ohio, all the polls are saying very close. the indications are that republicans are more enthusiastic, but perhaps the obama campaign has a stronger ground game. that will be the tussle. can the obama ground game overcome the advantage of the
4:18am
romney team. >> and president of the united states has a record. when you ask people how do you rate the economy. we have more results. it's not looking so good for the president of the united states. how would you rate the u.s. economy, 43% say poor. close to 40% say fair. and only 17% say good. that is not good for the president. >> look, the president is saying we don't want to go back to the way things were in the end of the bush era. most people agr romney is saying we don't want to go back to the way the last four years. most people agree with that. 51% trust romney more than obama when it comes to the economy. 44% trust the president. we see a similar breakdown on energy issues but when you get to national security measures, president still has the advantage. again very close race, a lot of

5:01am
information unfolds. in a crisis you never have the right information at first. they were so definitive for a week or two or maybe three that the attack was inspired because of a video. now you find out there is actually a digital paper trail that leads back to it. >> brian: situation room at the white house. >> and also the dni is looking at different e-mails that were all on there. it doesn't have the personal names but you know where it went to but its really long list. i does make you think how in the world the bad information, disinformation happen for one week. i do think it shows how smart romney to handle the debate. >> gretchen: it's co-so complicated. the information is so complicated. i thought it was a big mistake. now that you hear all this. you know what, bottom line they are still going to say it could
5:02am
be video though. >> what they are going to say cairo uprising started a few days before and video still inspired this al-qaeda group to get these arms together and come to benghazi. >> gretchen: if it turned out to be true. >> i would be surprised. they don't answer the key question. who pushed the video in the first place? why did they grab on to that? why, did our american law enforcement, we have done more against the guy who made the video here in america. he is still in jail on probation violation, we have done more than capture the people in libya they called back and get a correction. >> let's look at the e-mails. this quote comes in. says the regional security officer reports the diplomatic mission is under attack. tripoli reports 20 armed people
5:03am
fired shots. explosions have been heard, as well. ambassador stevens who is currently in benghazi and four personnel are in the compound's safe haven. militia is providing security defense. >> 6:07, smoking gun, sensitive unclassified, tripoli reports the group claimed responsibility and they have called for on embassy tripoli. wendall goler sat down with hillary clinton and she said we all had had the same intelligence. >> if they did. they weren't giving us the same intelligence. >> they had the same facts but spun it differently. >> if you seal these e-mails and you are in that job and they say i need you to go out and tell you it's a video. >> no. >> you could say that to people more powerful than you.
5:04am
>> yes, of course. absolutely. go for it. knock yourself and tell the nation that. first of all, i'm not going to say violence should be excused because of a video. that is wrong message. one, i'm not doing that, two i'm going to protect myself. i'm not going to say something that is not going to be true several weeks. smartest thing, victoria, she protected herself to say there is an investigation and ongoing. day after susan rice did her five interviews on sunday shows, there was question about the next day, how did she say it was video. victoria, as far as i know she out ranks me so you will have to ask her. >> gretchen: here is another question for you. who is on the e-mail list for the white house situation room? >> well several different people. desk officers, security personnel, military folks.
5:05am
>> gretchen: the reason i'm asking, will the president and vice president of the united states continue to say they did not know about these situations going on increased security? >> it's possible that whatever was coming, it's possible they decided not to tell the president or the vice president, not necessarily intentionally or maybe thought we can send this to them in a note in tomorrow's daily briefing. i think that would be mistake. i could see where it could happen. >> like you said a copy went to the director of national intelligence. >> someone in his office. >> that is first time that james was in the loop. vice chairman of the senate select intelligence committee. he listened to to it and had this reaction. >> we have been asking the state department for these specific e-mails for weeks now. they refused to give them to us at this point. we knew from the intelligence community that the group had claimed responsibility for the
5:06am
attack. now, does that mean they were responsible for it. now, you never know but at least they claim responsibility. so they are an al-qaeda affiliate. if they were not al-qaeda directly there was an indication that al-qaeda was involved immediately. what has bothered me and other members of the intelligence committee from day one we got pushed back from the white house as well as the intelligence community early on. we couldn't figure it out. it was really strange because they never do that. >> it is strange, a high ranking senator and white house is stonewalling him. >> all this tension between the executive branch and legislative branch. that is the role that our constitution set up. i think that he is mature and responsible person saying we deserve a right to know. >> dianne feinstein, if she wanted she could get it. >> last week she said i think it was the video.
5:07am
this e-mail proves that can't possibly be the truth. >> gretchen: she did come out last week it was terror but hadn't said anything up to that point. >> they wanted to be able to say it was the video but it was terrorism. who is on first defense. romney was smart to let it go. had had he said something, libya would be romney's problem. let president obama own this. >> new rasmussen poll released earlier this morning with scott. now the race is neck and neck. 48%. >> i think that is probably accurate. the poll was 47-47. >> this is after the debate. >> this shows that romney in the past six weeks high school gained in ohio where president obama has not. one of the things that obama's team is said to have is an excellent ground game but i
5:08am
think there are chips in the armor. they have the voter contacts by the rnc. but here we are on election night. everything is going to hinge on ohio. >> we're going to have dr. larry sabato and how romney can win without ohio. >> another question we asked. generally speaking how you would rate the u.s. economy. here it is. most people think it's poor. there is fair, 38%. then we go good at 17%. excellent, i haven't found that guy yet. >> where is he living? >> not in our world. >> and how would you rate the job barack obama has been doing as president. as you can see, strongly approve 36 but somewhat and strongly, that is a lot of people. >> and this is just ohio. >> it's not reflected in the
5:09am
national polls. i think one of the things that obama team, if they were to lose on election day will have to look back and think they should not have run a tactical ohio only campaign. they should have broadened it out. they tried with this nice booklet but it's very late. candidate can't be asked about it. the other swing states are not necessarily going in their favor, as well. north carolina is done. rumors about virginia being done. >> gretchen: let's talk about iowa. there is a newspaper there who interviewed both candidates, mitt romney, you can find that 60 minute interview on their website. they interviewed the president. it's a half-hour interview but apparently was asked to be off the record. this seems odd to me because if you are doing interviews, to have a newspaper pick who they are going to endorse, you would think both candidates interviewed would be on the record and available for the readers of the newspapers and
5:10am
general public to see if they agree with the newspaper. why would the president to be off the record? and why would the newspaper do the interview if it was off the record? >> great question. way back when, editorial boards was a closed door thing. they might be able to take a quote here or there. it was context and tone. sometimes in off the record situation you can be more loose and not worried about any language that you might use. i was surprised they decided to keep this off the record. especially if they knew that romney's was on the record. iowa is very close state. i felt like if you are going to do on the record interviews with the pimp with the limp, you might as well be able to do the same for the "des moines register".
5:11am
>> mitt romney did it and releasing it, don't you have to release it? >> they might get pressured into releasing it. >> gretchen: why would they do the interview? >> i read it was very shaky and there weren't any calls. no, it's off the record, at the said no. >> gretchen: it would seem to get it editorially you would use the same protocol for same candidates? >> you would think. they are signaling we're going to endorse him anyway but they seem to think, paper seems to think that the information they have from president obama would help president obama. now, then on the other side, you might think, that is not helpful. there might be something in there. it might be nothing. >> if i want to get my information i go to access
5:12am
hollywood. i seek the president on tonight show. and is this smart. >> don't forget the pimp with the limp. >> best interview he decided to do. >> and there is risk of doing the tonight show and daily shows. we saw what he paid the price for that daily show appearance. did president bush at any time employ i'm going to go all for the softer image. >> let me guarantee you, if you are a press secretary you don't get any soft balls. >> they are shooting for your head every day. >> you will see you continued on the five. thanks. >> gretchen: they wanted her bicycle so police say two teenage brothers murdered a 12-year-old girl. 1,000 people remembered her at a church. 15 and 17-year-old lured her to their home promised to trade

5:18am
not your guy, president obama, what has been going on there? >> i think it is interesting to try to figure out what it is. remember the economy in ohio is doing better than most places throughout the country. you would think that ohio is really a place it would be pro obama. so whatever romney is doing i think what he needs to do is continue to keep that flow and steady pace or fast pace. >> gretchen: people in ohio know the economy is better because the republican governor? >> well, yes, john kasich how soon done well. obama is talking about. we all know economics is an issue. we're in an economic fish. john kasich has done better for ohio i think that is playing in romney's a favor. he needs to keep his presidential stance. romney was more presidential
5:19am
than obama in the debate last night. >> gretchen: more women go to vote. both candidates really trying to wu the women vote. what dohave to do. >> obama won by 5%. a lot of people are looking for reason. romney didn't give them a reason for a long period of time. he did in the first debate. so i would emphasize the themes from the first debate. employment for women, employment for women has been running lower. i would talk about putting children first in education. a lost these women are suburban moms, they are focused on their children. i would talk about restoring confidence in america's future which is something if you ask people, a kind of rhetorical question whether they feel like america is heading in the right direction, whether they feel like it's doing the right things most of them will say no. >> women are tired of the partisan politics.

>> gretchen: during monday's debate president caught many people off guard about sequestration. this is what the president said. >> first of all. this is not something i proposed. it's something that congress proposed and it will not happen. >> gretchen: white house has backed off the comments, sequestration should not happen, but has the president tipped his hand when congress returns. we're back with the political panel. many people have come out and bob woodward and said what the president is said is not correct and reputed footd by the people. this was the white house's idea. on its face it was not truthful. does the american public even know what sequestration is. do they care the president did not take the truth about it? >> number one, woodward is an
5:26am
anti-obama author of a book. i'm not discounting what he saying, but he is very -- he is not in favor of what the president has to say. the point is american public necessarily understands the seriousness of what sequestration means. it's not just defense cuts, it's across the board. it's money that held by the treasury. that is something that affects workers and defense contractors, everybody. it's unfortunate they didn't get into the issue at hand at the debate. >> people are losing jobs because of it. i think obama might have overplayed his hand. even bob woodward wrote this book and seems like an anti-obama book, it was the omb director and head lobbyist that went to harry reid offered this. harry reid took it to the republicans and they cut a deal. >> gretchen: if the president actually believes what he said
5:27am
on the stage, he has power to not make it happen. there has been no deal? >> i think to give him some credit, i don't think he wants it to happen. to come out there and say, it was a good strategic move in the debate. most americans aren't paying attention to what sequester is. its word that people don't understand. it's going to be the focus of things after the election. he managed to defer answering question on military budget cuts saying sequester isn't going to happen. it probably won't happen and there is going to be negotiation afterwards. >> if it would have been phrased as job losses for members of our military it had a as different tone. >> it has different tone saying the president doesn't want it to happen, republicans have been trying to cut a deal so it will not happen. the president signed it into law so i can't see it wouldn't happen. >> there are trillion dollars
5:28am
that need to be cut. average american i don't think understands, i don't either. how much money that is. all of the cuts that are going to affect so many different levels. >> the calculator doesn't go up to a trillion but they understand it's a lot of dough. thanks so much. we told you about the exclusive e-mails out on libya. what is the white house's response? we're live there coming up next. and the term freshmen now offensive. your e-mails are pouring in on this one. what do we call those young kids that go off on to school? not freshmen any more. ♪ ♪
